So it’s my second time travelling to Italy and I’m so excited just to be in my favourite Italian city, Florence.
Today we have time to explore at our own pace. Yesterday we had a free day and I’m still recovering from the hauntingly breathtaking climb of the Duomo and the huge five course dinner that was included the night before – bruschetta, prosciutto, fusilli with creamy spinach sauce, rare lamb salad and the most amazing tiramisu, all accompanied by the local wine of course.
Intrepid’s Skye Gainey wondered if East Africa would live up to her high expectations when she finally had the chance to travel to Rwanda, Kenya and Tanzania…
At the age of 14 I walked the Kokoda Track, an experience that changed my outlook on life forever and ultimately led to me working for a company like Intrepid. Yes, it was physically and mentally challenging, but it was actually meeting the local people and experiencing their way of village life that put things in perspective for me as a teenage girl. Fifteen years on, I had another of these life-altering experiences – I travelled to Cambodia.
